Hardly Art

Acclaimed Seattle band Chastity Belt have returned with their first new music since 2017. This heartfelt new record, simply titled Chastity Belt, is due out on Friday, September 20th on LP, CD, digital, and cassette from Hardly Art records and Milk! records (Australia and New Zealand).  Chastity Belt was co-produced by the band and Melina Duterte aka Jay Som. 

“Drown” is the third and final pre-release single from this highly-anticipated new record.  Click here or the link above to stream the lush new track, which–appropriately enough for a record that sounds like the culmination of years of friendship and collaboration–has roots in the band’s early years. Singer/guitarist Julia Shapiro says “I started writing ‘Drown’ back when I was 23… so almost 6 years ago. It came together with the band a few years later. It feels good to finally put it out into the world! Everyone’s parts on it are really intricate and thoughtful and overall add to the moodiness of the song.”

Chastity Belt will be touring extensively this fall in Europe and North America in support of the record, and just announced a free, all-ages in-store performance at Easy Street Records in their native Seattle on Sunday, September 22nd. Click here for a full list of dates.

Pre-orders for Chastity Belt are available now.
